What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are super-thin shells of porcelain which fit over the front of the teeth to change their appearance. Veneers are versatile restorations, allowing you to subtly repair a single tooth or completely overhaul your smile by placing veneers on every visible tooth. Your dentist is your best source of information on veneers and can help you choose the best treatment path for you during a consultation.
Am I a candidate for dental veneers?
Dental veneers are made to fit over healthy natural teeth. Before placing a veneer, your dentist must ensure that the tooth in questions is free from plaque, teeth decay, and gum disease. A strong at-home oral care routine will help keep your veneers and underlying teeth healthy. A good candidate for veneers also has cosmetic issues like stains, chips, cracks, misshapen teeth, or slight over or under crowding.
What can I expect from the process for dental veneers?
A dental laboratory creates each dental veneer custom for you and your smile. For this reason, dental veneers normally require several appointments to complete. At your first appointment, your dentist will prepare your teeth to receive the veneer then take an impression of your mouth. The dental laboratory uses the impression to design and create your veneer, then sends it back to your dentist. In the meantime, you will wear temporary veneers to protect your teeth. At your second appointment, about two weeks after the first, your dentist will remove the temporary veneer and replace it with the final restoration.
